Hop in the car or hire some bikes from @cheddarbikes and in just under 5 miles, explore this hidden little gem.
At the foot of the Mendip hills is the quaint and charming, quirky and picturesque market town of Axbridge.
Take a walk around the reservoir surrounding stunning views and nature. You can also enjoy some water sports @bcyccheddar (be sure to book!)
Or travel down the old cheddar valley railway line which became known as ‘The Strawberry Line’ for taking the local fruit to London, is now a foot and cycle path linking Yatton and Cheddar.
Explore the town and its colourful half timbered buildings leaning towards each other down narrow streets and wander into @nationaltrust @kingjohnhuntinglodge a museum with all the knowledge and history (open later in the new year)
This town really is full of surprises… It even has its own jazzy little cinema @36andtheroxy opening back up in the new year!
Eat and Drink @lambaxbridge
– a traditional coaching inn, serving wholesome and delicious food and providing the best ales!
Farmers Market is held the first Saturday of every month.
History of Axbridge traces back to the time of King Alfred – when it was one of 30 places fortified to defend Wessex against the Vikings. It was close to the Royal Hunting Forest of Mendip and was granted a Royal Charter by King John in 1202 allowing it to hold markets.
We are so privileged to be situated near such beautiful locations. !
